TechCred helps Ohioans learn new skills and helps employers build a stronger tech-savvy workforce. Ohio’s TechCred Program provides businesses the chance to upskill their current and future employees with available funding. Businesses that submit successful applications can be reimbursed up to $2000 per credential when employees (current or prospective) complete technology-focused credentials.
Many approved TechCred trainings are available with ONLC Training Centers.
Employers applying for TechCred must select which credential their employee is pursuing from an approved list. To be considered eligible, credentials must meet these three specifications:
Technology-focused Definition: Technology credentials demonstrate the competencies necessary to succeed in an occupation that utilizes technology to develop, build, and deliver products and services. Technology credentials rely on science, technology, engineering and/or math related education, as well as technical skills, to benefit an employer dependent on the development, deployment and investment in new and emerging technology, including software development, advanced manufacturing, data analytics, cybersecurity, computer hardware and design, military applications and other emerging fields. Credentials on the approved list have been recommended by the Technology Review of Educational Credentials (TECHREC) panel of experts and approved by the Chancellor of the Ohio Department of Higher Education.
ONLC is an approved training provider for Ohio TechCred program. The programs are listed by Certifications and Certificates. A Certification is defined as earned by an individual who has passed a standardized assessment that recognizes the individual's knowledge, skill, or competency in a particular specialty. A Certificate, on the otherhand, is earned when one successfully completes a training, a course or a series of courses.
